Laughter Games Team Building Activity
TBAE’s Laughter Games team building activity is designed to do just what it’s name suggest, to cause laughter, a lot of laughter. In this activity teams compete against each other in a combination of team building exercises, especially chosen because of the fun and laughter they create.
The Laughter Games team building activity starts with a team building ice breaker that is also used to divide the group into teams. The ice breaker is designed to divide the group up in a way that ‘cliques’ are separated and new relationships formed. These teams then go on to compete against each other in various team building exercises. Points are awarded for each exercise and the team with the highest points at the end of the event is declared the winning team of the Laughter Games.
Laughter has many team building benefits. Laughter is a powerful way to combat stress and conflict. Humor lightens burdens, connects team members to each other and inspires hope. It is an excellent resource for surmounting problems and enhancing relationships within a team. Laughter relaxes the body, boosts the immune system, releases feel good chemicals and even keeps your heart healthier.
Laughter and playful communication, strengthen relationships by fostering emotional connections and positive feelings between team members. Being able to laugh, play and have fun together makes being part of a team more enjoyable and helps the team to solve problems, connect with each other and be more creative. Playing with a problem can often lead to a creative learning opportunity. Humor will give your team a new perspective that is more relaxed, creative, positive, balanced and joyful.
These are some of the team building exercises that may be included in the Laughter Games team building activity. Your facilitator will select the appropriate exercises to match the venue and team on the day.
